The 2nd Test of the 2019 Ashes series will start at Lord’s Cricket Ground, as the hosts look to hit back after a devastating defeat in the opening Test at Edgbaston. England has so far not lost a home Ashes series since 2001, and the hosts need to rebound. Australia, led by Steve Smith’s exceptional batting, recovered from a bad start on an opening day to ultimately coast to victory – England did suffer in the field after James Anderson’s calf injury early on in the morning. Jofra Archer, England’s World Cup talisman, is set for a Test debut and could be their key man as they look to get back to their winning stride. Let us take a look at the AUS vs ENG Dream11 match preview.
